I’m young (22) and primarily collect military surplus rifles (Finnish Mosins mainly), and I’ve decided that I’d like to get into traditional muzzleloading. I have a Traditions Mountain Rifle, but I’d really like to acquire a Lyman Great Plains Rifle.
If anyone has a Lyman GPR percussion in .54 for sale, let me know! I would post a WTB, but there’s a minimum post limit to post in that section.
Looking forward to learning more about muzzleloading!

Welcome from FL & the Middle East. I have four Mosins. None are Finnish but one is a Remington. Be careful with black powder. It's a lot more addictive than Mosins & one is all it takes!

Old military rifles are a lot of fun too. Especially when you are shooting ammo with corrosive primers!

Welcome!!
Until you find one on this forum, try gunbroker and some online firearms auctions. Much good fortune to you.

Thanks everyone! This seems like a very friendly place.
Welcome from the S Oregon Coast.
You'll love that GPR in .54, works well for deer and elk.
That’s exactly what I plan to use it for!

Very nice! I doubt that I’ll become more addicted to black powder than milsurps, but we’ll see!

I actually don’t even like to shoot corrosive ammo. That’s one thing that makes me nervous about getting into black powder. Hopefully I’ll learn how to clean black powder effectively!

Hi and welcome from northern New Mexico. I don't have no experience with a GPR, but .54 in general is a great caliber to be sure!

BP is actually a lot easier to clean than those “other” ones with pointy boolits…
Only thing is you HAVE to clean them ASAP, no napping in front of the TV after the range!
Better yet, clean them at the range then nap when home!!
